Why the name O'McPub Band?
In many Gaelic cultures, names tell a story and our chose of band name is no different. "O'" signifies 'grandson of,' and 'Mc' signifies 'son of.' It's a nod to our lineage – we are the bearers of a heritage that has thrived through generations, despite the many obstacles and hardships that attempted to end its existence. Our Irish roots, deeply entwined with music, art, literature, food, drink, and the spirited 'craic,' have been entrusted to us by those who came before.
Our music serves as a vessel, a heartfelt tribute to these traditions. Each song we play carries within it the echoes of age-old tales and the souls who've shared them.
"The Pub," the heart and soul of Irish life, symbolizes community, togetherness, and the spirit of shared experiences. In the warmth of these public houses, stories unravel, history is rewritten, wisdom is exchanged, and laughter is abundant. Our goal, wherever we play, is to conjure the spirit of 'the pub' – a community of people gathered to embrace life and one another.
Join us as we carry this legacy forward, one note at a time.
